Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 From Weeks 3-8, Gesicki had just one game where he finished worse than the TE10 in Half PPR scoring formats. He was playing lights out football and was steadily rising further and further up rest-of-season rankings. Since Week 8 though, Gesicki has yet to crack the top-12 again and he even has a 0-0-0 performance sprinkled in there in a game where he saw 7 targets. He's now watching as guys like Durham Smythe finish with more receiving yards on his own team and we now have to be very concerned about Gesicki's outlook moving forward. He can be viewed as a low-end TE1/high-end TE2 this week, but we need to recognize that he's starting to bring a lower floor than we once thought.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Knox feasted on Thanksgiving night, scoring a pair of touchdowns. (He had a third nullified by a penalty for an ineligible man downfield.) In the three games since he returned from a broken hand, Knox has 10-129-2 on 14 targets. He's the TE8 against a Patriots defense that's yielding 4.7 fantasy points per game to opposing tight ends. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Knox has 28 fantasy points over his last 2 games, but the Patriots are 4th against fantasy tight ends. Knox is a TE1, but he is more boom / bust at home in a very tough matchup.Mike Gesicki has averaged only 3.6 fantasy points per game over his last 3 games. He is a low-upside TE2 against a Giants team that is 13th against fantasy tight ends over the last 5 weeks.
